3 Whole30 Yummy/Healthy Food Options

About three months ago, I participated in the Whole30 challenge, and it made me feel fantastic. What it is, in its most basic form of rules, is eating clean foods or 30 days, so this would be meat, poultry, fish, veggies, fruits, fats (like avocados). This means there are a lot more foods you are not allowed to eat. That’s why I’m here to help a little! Here are three food recipes you can eat just for a healthy food option or to have an amazing Whole30 experience.


1.   This is one of my favorite breakfast options and it’s pretty simple!

  • 1 egg

  • Coconut oil (for cooking)

  • 10 sliced almonds

  • 1 cup of spinach

  • 1 large yellow pepper

All you have to do is scramble your eggs over the coconut oil and add your spinach,  sliced almonds, salt, and pepper. Then, you can cut a hole in your yellow pepper enough that the ingredients you just made can fit inside!


2.   I used this smoothie option quite often for lunch and you will need a blender for this one.

  • 1 cup of frozen bananas

  • 6 oz of unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 cup of spinach

  • 1 tbsp of flax seed

  • 1 tbsp of almond butter (NO ADDED ANYTHING)

  • 2 shots of espresso (you can also try using a teaspoon of instant espresso)

Just blend!


3.   Now it’s dinner time!

  • 3 oz of thawed chicken breast

  • Sesame oil

  • 6 ounces of asparagus

  • Half of a sweet potato

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Garlic powder

I usually like to boil my chicken because it goes by quicker, but sautéing, and grilling your chicken are great options as well. Then, cook your asparagus and you sweet potato together in the oven. Enjoy!


The last thing I would like to leave you all with is to make sure that your ingredients are all whole30 approved. I recommend looking up online or buying the Whole30 book to make sure.
